Extending the length of indoor daylight and providing steady heat in the cooler months can improve the growing season and also facilitate growing out of season. Having a complete system of effective greenhouse lighting Is essential for any grower to get the most out their crops and plants all year round – this can be a great advantage for growers who appreciate a supply of veggies, herbs and flowers all throughout the season.
Many plants need 12 hours or more of light exposure per day, some need as many as 18 hours. Plants which are exposed under a greenhouse grow light have been shown to grow up to nearly 30% larger than those not receiving any additional light. Although more always seems to be better, it is not economically beneficial to leave green house lights and LED’s burning 24/7. To deal with this, plug and grow timers can be a very important tool to maximise your propagation potential by programing your light, heat and water exposure for specific breeds of plants.
